It's a factory, but a good one

It's a factory, so you get a factory environment. It's very noisy and you are on your feet for the whole 8 hours, plugging away at your task. If you can handle that, then it isn't a bad place to work. The hours aren't great though; I worked full time midnights as the day shift rotates with the afternoon shift and I didn't want that.


Good money


Long hours on your feet

Not worth it

In the beginning it was a positive experience. Management was fair and approachable. However as time went by it became obvious that their processes and systems had very little thought put into them. They actually work against you being able to do your job accurately and efficiently.I’ve worked in a number of warehouses and all of them used some form of computerized system to manage their inventory. What does this place use? Ping Pong balls with handwritten numbers on them! For a company that’s been in business for 35 years this is not just analog, it’s downright prehistoric! Needless to say they had a lot of problems with their inventory. Training was woefully inadequate. I got a total of 2 hours of training by a fellow employee on high reach fork and then I was left on my own for the rest of the week to figure things out and ask questions. They have no dedicated trainers and are usually short staffed. The pay is barely acceptable. Unless you live 10 minutes away or less you’ll be spending too much on gas to make the job worthwhile. I travelled from Brantford and I spent $50 per week on gas. After deducting the price of fuel from my take home pay I ended up making around $17 an hour. Not worth it! They’re constantly hiring and have a robust turnover. But they’re opening a third plant when they can’t even keep their current plants adequately staffed! When they ended my contract I wasn’t upset, I was relieved! I never planned to stay long term, just maybe a year. But as time went by I became more and more frustrated with the place and the job and I wanted to leave sooner. - 


Decent working atmosphere but expect some jerks.


Low pay, no benefits for a full year, no pay increases, contract employment, inadequate training.

Good Place

Good place to work, lots of great people. Pay isn't the best but thats most places. You can spend lots of time slacking off. Also lots of overtime is your interested in that

It’s a terrible company to work for. I pity anyone that applies here.

I worked at vuteq for 3 years with zero appreciation. They promote all their buddies so If your not apart of the club well you’ll never get anywhere.


There is no pros unless your buddies with someone from the old ip department. This place is a joke.


Terribly managed, no respect, Treat you like they can replace you, but they can’t run all the machines required, not even the temp workers will stay.

work is very easy in all departments, although higher positions take their work home with them a lot, ie. receiving calls in the middle of the night and still expected to be in for their shift in the morning. hr and management are also terrible as stated in previous reviews.

Family and friends will never see you as long as you are employed there.

Do not recommend working here for you are just a number and you as a person will be replaced in a heartbeat if something happens to you or as soon as you get back to regular duties they will find a way to get rid of you


Took all the perks away from the employees


repetitive tasks and massive mandated overtime

Target expectations are higher

While working at Glass plant, i had to rush almost everyday to get close to daily target and still it was hard to achieve. I was working at front door glass machine and they were expecting me to do target by myself and even-though it was achievable by two workers only

Half high school Half nursing home

If you're gonna work here have fun, right from the getgo my supervisors didn't like me, actively went out of their way to screw me over by not properly training then throwing me onto a random machine having 1 minute to learn what to do, if a machine goes down everyone starts tweaking out genuinely unprofessional, toxic environment. If you want to get up to leadership/management the only requirement is to have room temperature level IQ. Vuteq is half high school, half nursing home, have fun having your soul drained out.


Made a couple good friends


Management barely scraped through school, Favoritism runs rampant, toxic people, toxic leadership, machines never get fixed properly, oil everywhere, mandatory overtime, expected to urinate my pants.

So so place

The environment for the most part is fast paced... parts are light.. the pay should be more... upper management for the most part make questionable decisions... the company is desperate to keep people so you can get away with more than you could in the past... quite a few people with issues... anger problems... needy... desperate for attention

Awful I can’t warn people away fast enough the don’t treat you like people. They only promote their friends and hr is useless. If you don’t want ti work at a place that breaks your soul don’t work here

Unrealistic Expectations

The target numbers they expect you to reach is impossible and they just get further behind and then you have to work mandatory overtime to try and catch up. Other than that the people are good and the pay is pretty good.

Horrible Place to work

Only work here if you are desperate and can't find anything else. benefits suck, pay sucks, management sucks, parking sucks, dress code sucks, coffee sucksthe list just goes on. This is a company that will turn off the ac during summer and heat off in winter to save money. It is run by a bunch of baboons that have no idea about anything. I am not kidding when I say a majority of the managers are probably unable to pass a standardized grade 9 test. remote work is strictly prohibited even if all you do is stare at a computer all day. and if you do work here do not make any complaints about anything because you will be fired.

Fun workplace. Always kept busy

I would recommend this place to work. The benefits are awesome. Little contests for departments the people you work with are amazing.the people are very friendly and training is very thorough. Everything is explained in a very good manner. very clean facility. Leadership is always willing to help if needed.


Meet new people


Sometimes not recognized of doing a great job

Maintenance department poorly managed

Worked there for almost 2 years and in that time received minimal direction as to how /why timelines were to be met and that it was production over all other factors when attempting a repair on equipment. frequently the production coordinators and or new project staff would attempt to "speed up" a process that would eventually have a snag due to poor planning and lack of general knowledge of entire process.

A Good Place Over All

Vuteq is a good employer. There are quotas to make so there is mandatory overtime at times, but it's not a big deal. This place has a bad reputation in Woodstock , but I'm not convinced the factory was the issue in the cases of those who complain. Benefits do not start until after 1 year which is odd , but at least they have Benefits to offer. If you have thought about applying here , do it. The work is easy enough and you'll never get laid off. There are also many positions available outside of "team member" If you can turn a wrench you can apply to maintenance and get an apprenticeship if you're willing to work hard. Or apply for a leadership position to gain experience that could lead to management. Good place to work.

Last resort option for work if you’re desperate. Steady work, but I would stay away if you have other options. IMO management is only there when things go wrong.
